French seams; often compared to flat-felled by industry professionals, is the process of seaming two fabric pieces together during construction in a very pristine, clean, and bespoke manner. This quality design technique originated from the creation of delicate lingerie and women's chiffon blouses during the Edwardian period of the 1910s. A time when clothing was always made by hand in very small, limited quantities; with superb textiles and exclusive fabrics. There are many benefits of the French seam, but most importantly they are performed on garments for their clean presence and added durability. This method of construction can only be found on luxury clothing items and accessories that are built to withstand wear-and-tear such as heavy-duty tents and outerwear. Fast fashion, or lower priced clothing hardly ever carries French-seams simply because of the time and skill needed to perfectly construct such a delicate task.
